This summer a group of youth and adults from Hinsdale UMC will embark on their 4th Mission Trip to Appalachian Service Project (ASP) along with a group from Geneva UMC. They will leave on Saturday, June 8 at 7:00 a.m. from Hinsdale UMC, driving to Lexington, KY. They will stay the night there, get up early Sunday morning, go to church there in Lexington (possibly with the Halligan’s who are former members from HUMC), and then travel on to the ASP site.
They will be at ASP from June 9 to 15, and will be serving in Salyersville, KY! It’s in Magoffin County, in the eastern part of Kentucky. They will be staying in a middle school that has showers in the gym locker rooms and additional showers in a shower trailer outside. The gym will be available for people for recreation and they have use of a field next to the football field. They will return to Hinsdale UMC on Saturday, June 15.
Please join us in making a difference by making a donation!
The group will be serving low income families making homes warmer, safer, and drier. Any funds raised go to helping the group get there and cover some of the overhead costs. Each person going on the mission trip pays $300.00 to sign up, which goes directly to the ASP organization. The actual cost per person is about $500-$600 per person. The additional $200-$300 raised/donated covers building materials, rental vans, lodging on the way there, meals there and back, gas in the vans, water, etc. Thank you for your support for this important ministry!
